Welcome to my website. Are you looking for a good book? I published my first book back in 1997 and have been writing ever since. My first seven books were all Regency Romances, but I’ve since branched out to write in other genres, too. Please take a look. I hope you’ll find something you’d like to read.

Wagon Train Cinderella

COMING SOON: Wagon Train Cinderella will be released by Kensington/Lyrical Press on Feb. 2, 2015.

Love can lead you out of the wilderness…

On a wagon train to California, a mistreated stepdaughter discovers she’s more than an  illiterate servant–much more! Rugged guide, Luke McGraw, helps make her aware of her beauty and intelligence–and in the process, falls in love.



My traditional Regencies were first published by Ballantine & Signet. Now I’m publishing them myself. Find them on Amazon, Smashwords, Nook and more. For information on my traditional Regencies, see My Amazon Author’s Page

Other books I’ve written:  Heartbreak Trail is one of my best sellers. If you read the reviews on Amazon, you will see that while most readers liked the book, a few were offended by the sex and bad language.  (I used the F-wordheartbreak_trail, back exactly three times!) Anyway, just a warning. But if you enjoy a thoroughly  researched book with lots of action and an intriguing love story, you will like Heartbreak Trail.

Find it with both the good and the bad reviews at Amazon, Heartbreak Trail




The Last of Lady Lansdown is the First Place (GOLD) winner in the Romance category of the 2013 Independent Publisher (IPPY) Book Awards. It’s unlike my other Regencies because it’s longer and contains some steamy sex scenes you’d never find in one one lansdown_300of my sweet, traditionals. Find it at Amazon, Lady Lansdown.







Looking for Lucky is the story of a lost dog and a lot more. It’s definitely adult, with some bad language but no steamy sex scenes. It’s the book of my heart, and not at all what you would expect.

Reviews for this book, both on Goodreads & Amazon, have all been glowing. Nobody did not like this book! Take a look at Amazon, Looking for Lucky.






Deadly Gamble is a Las Vegas mystery/romance with touches of the paranormal. I’m not a believer in the paranormal and neither was Kristie, my heroine, until all hell broke out at the Parthenon Hotel/Casino.Dealy Gamble JPEG This book contains a bit of Las Vegas history. A pack train that traveled the Old Spanish Trail is part of the story. Find it at Amazon, Deadly Gamble
